Discover the medicinal virtues of Aristolochia serpentaria, or Virginia snakeroot, a beautiful perennial flowering plant from the birthwort family. Native to eastern North America, it's attracting huge interest for its healing properties, making it increasingly rare in the wild. Consider cultivating it in forest areas where it can thrive. Its roots are used to treat skin, circulatory and kidney disorders, as well as other diverse medicinal purposes such as toothaches and snake bites.
